Comment (by compn):

 a quick way to settle this would be to have a company sponsor an official
 fork of both projects.

 then have all distros and downstream projects switch to that third fork.
 making ffmpeg and libav obsolete. all devs who want to keep working on the
 code will move to the new fork.

 history of the projects has shown that voting cannot be agreed upon. even
 the vote counts were debated endlessly. just look at those threads in 2011
 on ffmpeg-devel if you wish to see what voting looks like.

 any arbiter of disagreements would have to be a 3rd party.
 the server admins would have to be a 3rd party.

 i'm up for other ideas of course.
